Feeling Down After A Seizure

I have had epilepsy for 13 years. I’d say it’s somewhat controlled, I’m taking tegretol 400mg in the morning 400mg at night, the longest I’ve went without a seizure is 13 days shy of three years (15 November 2015 - 2nd November 2018) today just after waking up I had another one (13 months later) the physical after effects are starting to wear off but I’m feeling really down, I keep crying, I’m in fear of how people at work are going to look at me now as I was due in and had to ring up to tell them I couldn’t come in, I just really don’t feel like myself, I remember feeling down after seizures in the past but never longer than the day I had a one.
